I'm creating this thread so we have a place to discuss the draft without having any other discussion in the draft thread. I think it would be good if the draft thread were clean and for pretty much every post to be a pick. That way we have a clean, easy to read historical record of who did what. Plus we can stop the operation if, say, someone picks 3 Gold players or something like that.
On that note, did you all remember you still have to draft for APF2k8?
I kind of forgot, actually. Jayhawker and I were talking tonight and he kind of reminded me that my wish list of players aside I had to think strategically up and down the levels (Gold to Bronze) about player availability, who would be harder to replace.
My favorite scenario is this.
Which combo do you like better?
Christian Okoye (Bronze) at RB and Ronnie Lott (Gold) at FS
Earl Campbell (Gold) at RB and Fred Marion (Bronze) at FS
It's strange, but I prefer the first combination. I'm not sold on a gold RB being as money in the bank as a gold FS. And Christian Okoye is a better player for his value than Fred Marion, IMHO. So strangely (and I literally had this realization just tonight thanks to Jayhawker) our draft just got a little more interesting because when you think about it there are situations where a Bronze or Silver player is a more prize pick than a Gold.
Anyway, this is the thread to talk draft strategy, what's taken place, etc. That way we keep the original thread just to picks. Although maybe everyone will want to keep strategy to themselves. Either way, have fun.
